LBJ also had seven turnovers in under 31 minutes of action, but who's counting? He's now shooting 59.1 percent from the field (46 percent from deep) and the next closest player who isn't a PF or C is Wesley Matthews, who is also shooting absurdly well at 54.4 percent.

LeBron James scored 21 points with five boards, two assists, three steals and one 3-pointer on 7-of-17 shooting in 33 minutes during a 107-87 loss at Chicago.
It was the first time he shot below 45 percent from the field, which is a little ridiculous for a guy that takes 16 shots per game. James entered tonight shooting 72.9 percent in the paint on his 155 shots from that range. The Heat have two two-game losing streaks already this year after doing that just three times all of last season.

LeBron James jammed his fingers, tweaked his ankle and had a minor setback on his back in Friday night's win over the Raptors.
Beat writer Ira Winderman added it is possible that LeBron sits out on Sunday against the Bobcats. James finished with 27 points, six boards, three assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers on 10-of-17 shooting, so he didn't really look like a guy that was hurt. The Heat and Bobcats tip at 6:00 EST on Sunday, so his owners might want to just check back to make sure he's active.

He is now tied for fifth with 508 consecutive games scoring in double figures with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. It was his third game with multiple 3-pointers and surprisingly set season highs with the three steals and nine rebounds. James hasn't been his usual unbelievable self so far this season, but he'll likely have one of those monster games in the coming days.

LeBron James said on Tuesday that his lower back is still sore but it's not limiting him on the court.
"It's feeling better than the previous two weeks before I started to play the way I am," James said. He's averaging 26.0 points on 61.0 percent shooting this season, and it's only a matter of time before he increases his 5.5 rebounds, 6.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks per game. His efficiency is due largely to the fact that 54.8 percent of his shots have been within eight feet of the hoop, but he's also shooting a devastating 15-of-29 from downtown.

LeBron James hit just 6-of-13 shots for a season-low 13 points to go along with six rebounds, five assists and a steal in 31 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Hawks.
LeBron didn't need to impose his will on the Hawks tonight, but this line does prove that he is human. The Heat are at Orlando on Wednesday and we're expecting a bounce-back game from the King.

LeBron James stayed hot on Saturday in a win over the Bobcats, shooting 13-of-18 from the field for 30 points with four boards, seven assists, one steal and one block in 28 minutes.
He raised his field goal percentage to an absurd 62.2 percent with this one and he's just as unstoppable as he was last season. In fact, only three players in NBA history have shot over 60 percent from the field while attempting 15 shots per game: Shaquille O'Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Kevin McHale. After a somewhat slow start, the Heat have won six of their last seven games.
